We invite you to visit Tuscobia State Trail—

The Tuscobia has a variety of offerings as you travel from one end to the other, through each individual community. Due to the different land uses for the trail, history and geography, you could spend a significant amount of time in one section or explore the entire trail, with many amenities and overnight accommodations along the route.



The Tuscobia State Trail is open to the public, but users must proceed with care as many of the sections remain underdeveloped. Activities such as hunting and bicycling do occur on the Tuscobia State Trail. Cycling however is not encouraged as the trail is not groomed or surfaced and may be rough or soft in many sections of the trail making this potentially unsafe. Mountain bikes are recommended if one participates in this activity. Trail-users need to be aware that the Tuscobia State Trail is a multiple use trail. In order for all users to enjoy the trail, respect others and follow proper trail etiquette.
